Krispy Kreme Announces Second Quarter Fiscal 2009 Results

Winston-Salem, N.C., /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, Inc. (NYSE: KKD) (the "Company") today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal 2009, ended August 3, 2008.

The Company incurred a net loss in the second quarter of $1.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $27.0 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, in the second quarter last year. While a number of factors affected results for the quarter compared to the second quarter of last year, which are disclosed in detail in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed this morning, the largest single factor was that results for the second quarter of last year included impairment charges and lease termination costs of $22.1 million, or $.35 per share.

Total revenues for the second quarter decreased 9.5% to $94.2 million compared to $104.1 million in the second quarter last year. The decline in revenues reflects decreases in Company Stores and KK Supply Chain revenues, partially offset by an increase in Franchise revenues. Company Stores revenues decreased 13.5% to $65.1 million. Within this segment, on-premises revenues fell 10.5% in total (4.1% on a same-store basis) and off-premises revenues fell 15.7% compared to the second quarter last year. KK Supply Chain revenues declined 5.1% to $22.5 million, and Franchise revenues rose 30.1% to $6.6 million.

As of August 3, 2008, the Company's consolidated balance sheet reflected cash and debt of approximately $33.2 million and $75.4 million, respectively.

During the second quarter of fiscal 2009, 31 new Krispy Kreme stores, comprised of five factory stores and 26 satellites, were opened systemwide, and seven stores, comprised of five factory stores and two satellites, were closed systemwide. This brings the total number of stores systemwide at quarter end to 494, consisting of 286 factory stores and 208 satellites. The net increase of 24 stores in the quarter reflects a net increase of 29 international stores and a net decrease of five domestic stores. All 31 new stores were opened by franchisees. Approximately 80% of total stores are operated by franchisees, and over half are located outside the United States.

Second quarter systemwide sales increased 3.9% from the second quarter of last year. The growth in systemwide sales was entirely attributable to growth in sales by international franchisees; the domestic component of systemwide sales fell in the second quarter compared to the second quarter last year, principally due to store closures over the past 12 months.

"We are not satisfied with our financial results for the second quarter," said Jim Morgan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Some of the shortfall was due to external factors, but we must move forward on implementing our key strategic initiatives in order to achieve the positive long-term results we believe are possible." Those initiatives are:

  • Building new small retail concept shops in select Company markets to
  • bring our signature doughnuts closer to consumers and to establish the economics of the domestic hub-and-spoke model;
  • Bringing intense focus to the basics of shop operations to improve both
  • the consumer experience and our financial results;
  • Developing, testing and deploying new menu offerings to give consumers
  • more reasons to visit Krispy Kreme;
  • Improving how we do business in the off-premises channel, which has
  • particular revenue and cost pressures;
  • Building on our successes in international franchise development, to
  • which we are devoting additional resources;
  • Enhancing franchisee operational support both domestically and
  • internationally; and
  • Providing increased Supply Chain support to an increasingly global
  • business and improving franchisee service levels and economics.

"A weakening economy, combined with rising fuel and agricultural commodity prices adversely affected us in the quarter," Morgan continued, "but it's our task to operate successfully no matter the headwinds. Although our near term results may continue to be uneven, we have talented and dedicated employees who are working hard to implement the further improvements necessary for us to be successful for the long term."

Many factors could adversely affect the Company's business. In particular, the Company is vulnerable to further increases in the cost of raw materials and fuel, which could adversely affect the Company's operating results and cash flows. In addition, several franchisees have been experiencing financial pressures which, in certain instances, have become exacerbated in recent quarters. Royalty revenues and most of KK Supply Chain revenues are directly related to sales by franchise stores and, accordingly, the success of franchisees' operations has a direct effect on the Company's revenues, results of operations and cash flows.

Systemwide sales, a non-GAAP financial measure, include sales by both Company and franchise stores. The Company believes systemwide sales data are useful in assessing the overall performance of the Krispy Kreme brand and, ultimately, the performance of the Company. The Company's consolidated financial statements include sales by Company stores, sales to franchisees by the KK Supply Chain business segment and royalties and fees received from franchisees, but exclude sales by franchise stores to their customers.

Management will host a conference call to review second quarter results this afternoon at 4:30 p.m. (ET). A live webcast of the conference call will be available at www.KrispyKreme.com/investorrelations.html.

Among the key factors that may have a direct bearing on Krispy Kreme's operating results, performance or financial condition are the outcome of pending governmental investigations, including by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") and the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York; potential indemnification obligations and limitations of our director and officer liability insurance; the quality of Company and franchise store operations; our ability, and our dependence on the ability of our franchisees, to execute on our and their business plans; our relationships with our franchisees; our ability to implement our international growth strategy; our ability to implement our new domestic operating model and refranchising strategy; currency, economic, political and other risks associated with our international operations; the price and availability of raw materials needed to produce doughnut mixes and other ingredients; compliance with government regulations relating to food products and franchising; our relationships with wholesale customers; our ability to protect our trademarks; risks associated with our high levels of indebtedness; restrictions on our operations and compliance with covenants contained in our secured credit facilities; changes in customer preferences and perceptions; significant changes in our management; risks associated with competition; and other factors discussed in Krispy Kreme's Annual Report on Form 10-K for fiscal 2008 and other periodic reports filed with the SEC.

both Company and franchise stores. The Company believes systemwide
sales data is useful in assessing the overall performance of the
Krispy Kreme brand and, ultimately, the performance of the Company.
(2) Represents, on a Company and systemwide basis, total sales of both
factory and satellite stores divided by the number of operating weeks
for both factory and satellite stores.
(3) Represents, on a Company and systemwide basis, the aggregate number of
operating weeks for both factory and satellite stores.
(4) The change in "same store sales" represents, on a Company and
systemwide basis, the aggregate on-premises sales (including
fundraising sales) during the current year period for all stores which
had been open for more than 56 consecutive weeks (but only to the
extent such sales occurred in the 57th or later week of each store's
operation) divided by the aggregate on-premises sales of such stores
for the comparable weeks in the preceding year period. Once a store
has been open for at least 57 consecutive weeks, its sales are
included in the computation of same stores sales for all subsequent
periods. In the event a store is closed temporarily (for example, for
remodeling) and has no sales during one or more weeks, such store's
sales for the comparable weeks during the earlier or subsequent period
are excluded from the same store sales computation.
(5) For Company off-premises sales, "average weekly number of doors"
represents the average number of customer locations to which product
deliveries are made during a week by Company Stores, and "average
weekly sales per door" represents the average weekly sales to each
such location by Company Stores.
